Bio

It is difficult to present OBIBASE without earlier speaking about Aboubacar Sylla (Guinea Conakry, 1982). This musician self-educated and multidisciplinary, came to Spain to collaborate in the recording of a disc with the stamp Black Cloud (Madrid), endorsed by his deep knowledge of different African percussion instruments and his voice when scarcely he was 17 years old. After two intense years touching in European and national tours with different formations (Seydu - Sierra Leone, Bidinte - Guinea Bissau, Wafir - Sudan, National ballet of Ivory Coast, Joust - Cameroon, Tazajo Tamboo - Venezuela) and thanks to his big capacity of adaptation and learning, other Spanish musicians who meet him cheer him up to form his group to compose and to sing its own music.
This way there arises OBIBASÉ, a band that it answers so much to the need to create from his African root as to that of be mixing and integrating across the music. To the base of percussion contributed by Sylla , they incorporate the guitar of Andres Villalon who comes from a world famous Cuban group Habana Abierta and jazz bands, the bass is an Sevillian boy, Chechu Sierra, with a recognized Flamenco influence (he collaborates as member of the band who accompanies Diego Amador in his current tour). As last incorporation to the group ,the drums of Miguel Gonzalo, which it takes years incorporating all his knowledge of African, Latin and Flamenco percussion.
All the members of OBIBASÉ are anxious musicians who manage to agglutinate with mastery, in spite of his youth, tradition and modernity, roots and universality in this one common project, and simultaneously to keep on being employed at other proper and foreign projects. OBIBASÉ is a part of a new afrospanish generation that opens doors for the merger with the sounds of the nearby continent; transforming into a proper sound, across musical currents of different origins as the flamenco, the reggae, the jazz, the Latin music.
